COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The idea behind this series is to tap into fruit drinks popular in Latin culture. Each entry in the series will feature a different fruit and possible blend of others. First up is Guanabana Ale. We made this beer in collaboration with J Wakefield Brewing. This beer is very light but very drinkable and the guanabana is huge.

Brought to RBG in Jax, I thought this was sort of underwhelming considering my love of JWs beers and my love of low ABV CCB products. Just sorta bland, kinda like a slightly fruited pale ale with little hop presence. I dunno, not seeing anything too remarkable here considering the participants.

Growler... RBWG 2013... Cloudy light yellow brew with a tiny, fleeting, white head. The aroma features tropical, fruity guanabana, rooty sarsaparilla and licorice, with a cracker malt foundation. Medium-bodied and creamy with lazy carbonation. The flavor is lightly fruity, mildly bitter and bready, but somewhat flat and mundane overall. Crisp, refreshing finish. Im hoping this series takes a big-time turn toward an acidic Berliner weisse base. Im looking forward to a Guanabana Florida Weisse at some point.

Tap at brewery. Pours a hazy murky orange. Ripe tropical fruit aroma with a touch of mustiness. Light tropical fruit taste with earthy hop bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy yellowish/gold/orange pour, with a fluffy white head. Aroma of guava, pineapple and a bready note. Very tropical flavor forward, some pineapple, mango, malty, easy drinking. Cool beer and I look forward to the next in the series.

Hazed yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of sour banannas and pineapple. Sour fruit with a light bitter finish. A tad thin and fizzy.

Cigar City Guanabana Ale might not sound like a great beer to purest, but it really is just a well-executed ale. Pours cloudy almost like an unfiltered wheat beer with a fruity nose. Taste is malty with a sweet touch and a fruity aftertaste. Guanabana is a tasty ale with a fruit touch.

On draft at Sybarite Pig. Walked in extremely late looking for a night cap and went with this. It wasnt really sour or tart like I was hoping but its an interesting fruit beer none the less, and plus super drinkable.

Draft @ WOB Dadeland. Pours murky brownish yellow color with off white head. Smells like pineapple juice. Tastes like a pale lager mixed with pineapple juice. Not very good, I had a hard time finishing a few ounces. Light to medium body with average carbonation.

Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with little lacy cap of white film and no real lacing. Aroma is like a babys diaper who ate too much mango salsa. Taste is banana, wheat, yeasty esters. Not as good as I was going for, thin and somewhat spicy heartburn feeling.
